During the week of Jan. 26 to Saturday, St. Joseph-St. Elizabeth School celebrated Catholic Schools Week with the theme “Celebrating our History.” Principal Lois Widner and Assistant Principal Greg Slee gave short talks to parishioners before all the Jan. 26 Masses. Parishioners also had an opportunity to ask them questions about the school after Mass, and see the new school uniform for the future St. Elizabeth Ann Seton School.

On Wednesday, the new St. Elizabeth Ann Seton School, a 37,000-square-foot addition to the church at 10700 Aboite Center Road, held an open house. Currently, St. Joseph-St. Elizabeth Ann Seton School offers pre-kindergarten through fourth grade at St. Elizabeth and grades 5-8 at St. Joseph's, 2211 Brooklyn Ave. However, in the 2014-15 school year, the schools will be independent.

On Thursday, St. Joseph-St. Elizabeth School held assemblies at both campuses to reveal the contents of a time capsule that will be buried and opened in 2024. Students and staff watched the St. Joseph-St. Elizabeth School Memory Lane slide show compiled by art teacher Kristin Spoltman.

On Friday, the students recited a living rosary led by the National Junior Honor Society in St. Elizabeth Seton church, followed by an all-school Mass.

Catholic Schools Week wrapped up Saturday evening with the annual Legacy Auction, a gala with dinner and an auction for school parents, staff and friends of St. Joseph-St. Elizabeth Seton School. The parish activity center was decorated with the theme of Mardi Gras.
